Need Help to Identify This 80s Charvel


Would appreciate some help identifying this 80s Charvel. Its for sale locally with no price here in Hong Kong. The seller doesn't sound too savvy because he says its missing the "L-shaped" stick. Is this a Predator or some early San Dimas model? Although it doesn't have the Strat style neck and it only has one humbucker. The ad says its a USA model.

The poor quality picture is from the local web site and that is all I have right now. Also anyone have a feel for what this thing sells for nowadays? I'm thinking of offering him $150 bucks and see what happens. Looks like it has the original tan Charvel buzzsaw case too.

Best Regards,

It's a Charvel Model 1 and was made in Japan, despite the fact that the neck plate has "Fort Worth Texas" on it.

Depending upon condition, it's worth around $250-$300 or so if you can get it for $150, that would be a good deal.
